Summer Bridge is a three week program in June to bridge 7th and 8th graders to Withrow. The first week is a Get to Know You program, and the following two weeks include instruction in English, Math and Study Skills.

Ms. Innis is a teacher working with incoming 7th graders, and Ms. Houston is a teacher working with incoming 8th graders.
